DEAN A'FIELD IS A THE BIGGEST ASSHOLE ON THE PLANET. FOR A GUY THAT WENT TO COLUMBIA HE GIVES THE SCHOOL A BAD NAME.

THE DEAN OF STUDENTS IS A NON-EDUCATED HICK WHO PROBABLY GOT THE JOB BY SLEEPING WITH THE DEAN, AND SHE WALKS AROUND THINKING SHE HAS POWER. THIS IS DEAN CASTRO.

THE PROFESSORS THAT ARE LEFT ARE PROBABLY THE ONLY GOOD THING LEFT THAT THIS INSTITUTION HAS ASIDE FROM DEAN DOBRANSKI.

THE WORST OF ALL, THE DEAN CHECKS THE GRADES BEFORE THEY ARE POSTED...90% OF THE TIME HE CHANGES THEM.

THERE IS OVER $3MILLLION WORTH OF MATERIAL THAT IS COPYWRIGHTEN THAT AVE HAS NOT PAID FOR.


IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR FUTURE...DO NOT COME HERE.

I believe these warning posts serve a valuable function to TLS.

On the other hand, the stips kind of work in your favor because it provides you with incentive to drop out if you don't make the top 30%. Unless you have a guaranteed job coming out of school, failing to be in the top of your class will make it challenging to find decent employment. So, if you need the incentive to cut your losses after the first year, this could help.

This line of thinking ignores the opportunity cost of spending 3 years not working plus objectively making your resume worse for non-law jobs.

UF/FSU with at least some scholarship or Miami for free are the only options you should consider in Florida.

I wouldn't touch Nova, Stetson, Barry, Coastal, A&M, St. Thomas, Ave Maria or FIU even for free. MAYBE Stetson if you were dead set on a low paying job in Tampa.

A scholarship at UF/FSU requires a 162+ with a median GPA. That isn't hard, OP. You can easily do that with a year off.

EDIT:

Just searched your history. You have a 3.8 and are considering a T4? Jesus christ OP. Retake.



Nah you won't get a scholly from those schools (FSU / UF) with those stats. I didn't.

Not everyone is capable of being the top 1% of test takers. However, I think virtually everyone who graduated from a decent college with a not horrible GPA should be capable of breaking into the 160s with consistent practice.

If your goal is small law or state/local government in Florida, UF or FSU with in-state tuition and a scholarship isn't a bad deal.


Um... actually, It's impossible for everyone to get into the 160's. The LSAT is curved. 80% of people must be below 160. Just like 50% of people will be below 152.

But it's a guaranteed fact that not everyone who takes the LSAT is going to have put in extensive hours of practice. Read the "Overhead at the LSAT" thread to get a sense of what some of the people helping to set the curve are like going into the LSAT if you're concerned about rigorous competition.

Really though, don't worry so much about that part to begin with. Focus on cutting down your missed questions per section. The actual score will take care of itself if you can keep pushing yourself to improving on all of the sections.
